Vatican Accepts Oscar Wilde Into The Fold

“In life, he was about as likely to get an audience with the Pope as Pontius Pilate. Now, more than a century after his death, Oscar Wilde,” who converted to Catholicism on his deathbed, “has been claimed by The Vatican as one of its own. … Moves to rehabilitate Wilde began two years ago when his aphorisms were included in a collection of maxims and witticisms for Christians published by Father Leonardo Sapienza, head of protocol at the Vatican.”
